Presentation ceremony

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our presentation ceremonies. Any number of guests are welcome to attend daytime presentations, allowing all who have contributed to the organisation's achievements to celebrate their success. Informal seating will be available allowing supporters to watch proceedings, whilst the nominated person is presented with the award. A cash bar will be available serving drinks and light refreshments.

Timing is critical to the smooth running of the ceremony and we would therefore make the following recommendations:

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes before your registration time and wait in the presentation room for your group to be called to register.
  • Help keep delays to a minimum by adhering to the rule of 'one recipient per award'.
  • The nominated recipient should report promptly to the registration desk when your group number is called.

We will endeavour to present your award within 30 minutes of registration.

Registration and presentation time notifications will be sent via email by mid August for the Scotland ceremony. If you have not received details by this date, please contact the RoSPA Awards administration team on +44 (0)121 248 2090/91.

Group photographs

Successful health and safety management undoubtedly involves team effort. A great way to recognise the whole team's contribution is with a group photograph. The image will be saved to USB as a high resolution jpeg and will be available to take away on the day, making it ideal for immediate use for PR purposes and in-house newsletters.

Pre-order a group photograph for £45.00 plus VAT. Payment can be made by cheque (made payable to RoSPA); by debit/credit card or on receipt of an official purchase order number for invoicing.

On the day please visit the group photograph room once you have collected your award:

After Dinner Entertainment

Willie Hunter

Willie Hunter is currently one of the senior partners of the Edinburgh legal firm "Gillespie Macandrew" – and is the partner in charge of their estate agency department which trades under his name "Hunters".

Willie (62) is married to the long suffering Avril and has three children 32, 30 and 25 – stupid names - but it was his wife's idea.

Willie started speaking at dinners back in the days when the Dead Sea was only seriously ill – and has had the pleasure of sharing top tables with the likes of Rory Bremner, Ronnie Corbett, Andy Cameron and Elaine C Smith from the world of showbusiness – and from the world of sport Bill McLaren, Ian Robertson, Jack Charlton and Tommy Docherty amongst others. He has spoken at Burns Suppers and St Andrews Night functions as far afield as Cairo, Houston and Abu Dhabi.

He has travelled all over the country in search of an audience that hasn't heard him speak before and will travel long distances for a free meal.

In his youth Willie played nearly 250 games for Watsonians alongside the Hastings "sisters" Gavin and Scott. No lesser an authority than Bill McLaren stated that Willie would have played for Scotland... if he had been a much, much better player than he was!!

He has been a lifelong supporter of Hearts but has retained a sense of humour despite that. For 12 seasons he was the resident MC in the main hospitality suite at Tynecastle Park – and took great pride in the fact that he was one of the few people who actually got paid to watch Hearts.
